Long Trail Ale is a full-bodied amber ale modeled after the Alt-biers of Dsseldorf, Germany. Our top fermenting yeast and cold finishing temperature result in a complex, yet clean, full flavor. Originally introduced in November of 1989, Long Trail Ale beer quickly became, and remains, the largest selling craft-brew in Vermont. It is a multiple medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival.

ClarkVV (6082) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 3, 2005
2004 bottle at Julios Spring Beer Fest, 4/02/05. Pours a clear, amber mixed with caramel brown, small white head, with some retention. Smells of light toffee, a touch of sour yeast and some darker, bittersweet fruits. Flavor is quite full up front, with a strong yeast presence coupled with brown sugar, and dry toffee. Dries out considerably towards the end, with some light astringency and a touch of fruitiness. A bit of dirty, earthiness lingers on. Medium body, moderate, large-bubbled carbonation.

A nice golden color with no head. Sweet floral aroma with a hint of honey. Taste offers some hoppiness with a little spice as well. Settles toward the front of the palate. A crisp clean mild beer, a good starter for those new to craft brewed beers.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Bottle: pours copper with a small, thin white head. Light malt aroma and not much else. Flavor is lightly malty but fairly dry. Kind of a small meat thing going on with a touch of soy sauce. Average at best.

skisangelo (60) - Collingswood, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2005
A big frothy head that quickly vanishes. It pours a nice amber color. A sweet floral aroma. A nice hoppy flavor in the front but turns metallic in the end. A good beer to have every now and again.

clear caramel coloring with a huge rocky head, weak aroma I can kind of smell something malty but even thats pushin the envelope, what the hell does that saying mean anyway?, wierd, very dry hop flavor, which is good, barley malt, finishes like a fat kid at a track meet.

Geez, Long Trail hopped the daylights out of this beer! The hops hit you up front, and hard. In the aftertaste, you get more of a metallic flavor. Available in NYC as of 2/05. Not much malt, frankly, and I cant say I enjoyed it a whole lot. Quite floral.

Very good beer, nice balance of malt and hops and very smooth. Unfortunately now that I am not longer in Vermont I cant get this beer.

Frothy head that quickly dissapates. Amber color. Sweet flavour with fruity, raspberry notes. Quite nice and refreshing. Cheers!

Bottle. Amber/golden color. Good balance of hops and malt. Nothing special.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Appearance: clear, bright amber color, with a nice, fluffy, off-whitish head. Aroma: clean and even, rather lager-like, slightly floral, mildly hoppy. Taste: minor-key fruitiness on the palate, just enough malt to keep the flavor semi-interesting, slight citrus character. Very light in body, short finish, very light in every regard. When I used the phrase "minor-key" previously, that can be applied almost every-which-way here, for nothing in this brew strives beyond the simplest conception of what an ale has to be, at the very least. Incredibly boring. I can imagine this would do, if it were found at the sort of establishment that served nothing but macro-swillish products, but certainly not the sort of thing Id ever seek out or choose to drink on its own merits.
